We tried the dim sum at lunchtime today. The place was packed and we had a 45 minute wait for a table. The congee (thick rice based soup) was delicious and the portion size fit for a sumo wrestler (sorry, I can't think of the Chinese equivalent!). Everything else was pretty average. The staff were efficient but almost too much... More

I went for lunch and ordered several different dim sum and also a Seafood Hot Pot casserole. They were all excellent but the Satay Cuttlefish and Vietnamese Spring Rolls stood out for me - definitely worth ordering. The service was very friendly and also quick!

Situated next door to a Chinese supermarket in a not so busy area of town, and with ample parking, so decided to pop in for lunch after shopping. Even on a Monday lunch time it was fairly busy, with a mix of local and Chinese diners - always a good sign. Being alone I did not have a large selection... More

I come here at least once a month and the Chinese food is the best in town. The service is always excellent even when the place is full, which is nearly always. BUT please clean the place a bit better. The entrance way is always cluttered and dirty but the main dinning area really needs a good spring clean as... More

We've eaten many times at Manchurian in Aberdeen & it's usually great. But tonight's meal was disappointing. The service wasn't up to the usual standard. The food was bordering on below average & we didn't enjoy any of it. Such a shame as it used to always be good. The portion sizes are confusing too. Last week there were three... More

The restaurant had a nice , relaxed atmosphere, the staff were friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious with a good selection on the menu. It was also a great choice for a straight from work dinner with work mates as they open at 5:30. Really enjoyed the meal and would definately go again.
